In my life I’ve worn several, some with greater aplomb than others. Party girl was a good fit. Motherhood was one that stayed the longest, but I’ve worked an oddball lot of jobs, starting out drilling bowling balls for the JCPenney sporting goods department before moving upstairs to run their old school printing press (placing one letter at a time). I worked in offices, for direct mail companies, did some bookkeeping, was an aide for the US government, and worked in sales for a couple of educational technology companies. Along the way, I built skills and odd talents, but mostly, I acquired life.

Writers should work in weird nooks and dusty corners, but also in busy, over lit offices and shiny conference rooms. It’s how you learn to choose the word that sets the tone, flavors the emotion, and gives the reader the sense of being in the moment with your characters.

So, here’s to hats. May you wear many, and wear them well.

P.S. Don’t forget your Freebie!

P.P.S. Go grab “To Walk in the World”. My email is blowing up with happy fans.

Winnie Winkle is a fabulous Central Florida broad who swills bourbon, likes dogs and cats, and practices yoga, but not with any degree of grace. Supporting live local music is a pretty big deal to Winnie, so if you pass a gravestone that admonishes, 'Go see the band and hit the tip jar', it's probably hers. But, since she's not dead yet, she'll keep penning fun stuff to rock your reading chair A 30 plus year Florida resident, she splits her time between Daytona Beach Shores and the Mount Dora areas. She prefers writing beach-side as much as she can because, if we’re baring our souls here, the ocean is a mighty muse and one can only expect so much from coffee. Winnie is most active on Facebook, so come say hello!
